This post is a long time coming! Last Fall, I was asked by the editors of HGTV.com to come up with some unique ideas for hosting a Game Night party for a feature they were doing on entertaining ideas at home, during the winter months. I was thrilled to be asked, and of course quickly whipped together some ideas that I think you can all re-create for your game night.
I added a graphic impact with bold black and white striped tablecloths throughout the party. I wanted a playful centerpiece for our dinner table, so I added black dot stickers to the side of a white vase to look like a dice. A pomander of red carnations filled the vase and made a bold statement.
I tied the napkins with a little tag featuring playing card characters, and each placesetting included a cupcake accessorized with a fondant dice from Two Sugar Babies housed under a mini glass dome.
I created a small dessert table that would be readily available to guests so they could grab desserts in between hands. Desserts included poker chip cookies from Allyson Jane, brownie bites accessorized with fondant dice, a jar of red hot candies from Candywarehouse.com, and cupcakes decorated with mini playing card cupcake toppers (which I whipped up in about 2 seconds!).
